**What is an Axiom?**

**Axiom -**a statement or statements assumed to be true without proof, which a system was made. It is the building block that makes everything else work. It is a starting point of the logical flow of a system. It is an order.

**Axioms**usually told as also a postulate. But axiom is more in general than

**postulate**which is more specific.

**Axioms**cannot be both true and false at the same time.

Further, nn axiom is a statement or proposition that is assumed to be true without needing proof or demonstration. Axioms serve as the foundation for a system of reasoning or a theory, and are used to derive other statements or conclusions through logical deduction.

In mathematics, axioms are also known as postulates, and are used to define the basic properties and relationships of mathematical objects, such as numbers, points, lines, and planes. For example, Euclid's postulates are a set of axioms that form the basis for Euclidean geometry.

In philosophy, axioms are used to establish basic principles or truths that are taken to be self-evident or intuitively obvious. These axioms may form the basis for a particular ethical or moral system, or for a system of metaphysics or epistemology.

The term "axiom" can also be used more broadly to refer to any fundamental principle or assumption that underlies a particular field of knowledge or inquiry.

**Examples:**

**1.) The world is round.**

2.) We are all humans.

3.) Integers are whole numbers.

4.) We need air to breathe.

5.) All triangles have three sides.

**The seven (7) Euclid Axioms**

1. Things which are equal to the same thing are equal to one another.2. If equals are added to equals, the wholes are equal.

3. If equals are subtracted from equals, then the remainders are equal.

4. Things which coincide with one another are equal to one another.

5. The whole is greater than the part.

6. Things which are double of the same things are equal to one another.

7. Things that are halves of the same things are equal to one another.

AnonymousIs this the same as postulate?
